In the trailer for the new Gilmore Girls season on Netflix — which comes out in November, by the way — Lauren Graham’s Lorelai wonders, “Would John Oliver find me hot?”
Last night on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, Colbert put that question to John Oliver himself, and the reason why you clicked on this post is to find out what he said. But that’s not why you should watch his appearance on The Late Show. You should watch his appearance on Colbert because he spends roughly the first four minutes telling Tim Kaine Dad jokes, and it is hilarious. In fact, without watching the first four minutes of Tim Kaine Dad jokes, you won’t completely understand the full answer to the Lorelai Gilmore question.
What I’m saying is, you should watch the entire clip, because it’s fantastic, and Oliver and Colbert behave like giddy friends who haven’t seen each other in a while. (But if you insist on only knowing Oliver’s answer to the Gilmore Girls question, skip to the 6 minute mark).
